We stayed there for 2 nights. The room itself is ok, but the bathroom could do some upgrade. Plus, there was a spider in a bathroom ceiling corner, but it was so high up that we couldn't get it. So everytime I was in the bathroom, I was freaking out that the spider would land on my head or something.... More

We stayed for three nights. The rooms were just tired and the bathroom tatie and not particularly clean. However, unlike reviews below, the pool was in good order and fine to take a dip in after the exertions of climbing the rock. We ate in once, but preferred to eat in the village - much better food available. It could... More

Ok to start with something positive, the staff is nice and the internet speed was 60 mbit. The breakfast is reasonable. However, rooms are full with mosquitos and they can come in everywhere. Bed is as hard as the lion rock itself, so are the pillows. Mattresses are filthy. Room was really filthy, surroundings of the buildings was filthy. We... More

Must have been ok at some stage but now quite ran down. Perhaps it is because it is off season but place seemed neglected with a few things broken in the room (lights, shower head, sink). Pool wasn't clean. Food was bad. It is also quite far from most restaurants. Staff friendly and helpful

I stayed here as this was booked through the 3night 4day trip I'd booked for the cultural triangle. The rooms are very basic and like other reviewers have commented the bathroom really could do with a deep clean. There were a family of frogs living under the toilet rim which wasn't ideal! Pool was clean when I stayed. Food food... More
